For the first time in a long time, rapper T.I. was given a chance to get a breath of fresh air after he was granted permission to attend Easter church service at the Georgia Dome yesterday. The rapper, who is currently on house-arrest for several felony weapon charges was accompanied by his fiancee Tameka 'Tiny' Cottle, their children. One of T.I.'s lawyers as well as a court-approved monitor were also present as part of the terms of him being able to go. T.I. was arrested last October hours before he was to perform at the BET Hip-Hop Awards in Atlanta. Authorities say he was trying to buy unregistered machine guns and silencers. He faces up to 10 years in prison and a quarter-million dollar fine on each of the weapons charges fled against him. He is under house arrest as he awaits trial.

Atlanta photographer and blogger Sandra Rose has exclusive pics of the rapper and his clan as they posed for pictures. According to Rose:
T.I. and his family arrived at the dome aboard his favorite mode of transportation: a special tour bus kitted out with plasma tvs. A friend who spoke with Tiny by cell phone aboard the bus could hear T.I. in the background telling his kids, “y’all gotta be good today!” Tiny promised the caller that there would be photo ops available at the dome once they arrived. “[T.I.] is expecting that,” she said. Tiny, who is 6 months pregnant with a boy, looked radiant as she patted her belly backstage at the dome. The service was very emotional and moving as T.I. took the podium to give a speech on AIDS and its effects on the black community.

T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris, said, “We’re here to celebrate the death of our Lord and Savior,” Harris said, “he was willing to give his life for us so that we may ask for forgiveness for our sins and be forgiven and saved…no matter how many times we have to ask…or how long it takes to get it right.”
